Should Philadelphia count on an algorithm for bail reform?
from City Lab
As is the case in many cities, jails in Philadelphia are overcrowded and full of people who have been found guilty of nothing. These people are behind bars because they cannot afford to pay bail, a circular problem that is costing the city millions. The city is currently holding about a thousand inmates over the capacity of its jails, and more than half of these individuals have not been found guilty of a crime, according to Newsworks.
